Hi all,
I read once somewhere that Hermann Müller-John would have married a certain Frau John and he would have affixed her name to his. Whether this is true or not, I do not know. And if it is the case, had she British or American origins ? Maybe someone can confirm ?
Nevertheless, I have always been wondering what the correct pronunciation for his name should be. I mean how did German people pronounce his name at the time ? Should it be the “german” pronunciation [mylǝrjo:n] or the « english » pronunciation [mylǝrdȝɔn] ?

If I'm not mistaking, this photo was in the book "Twelve Years With Hitler: A History of 1. Kompanie Leibstandarte SS Adolf Hitler 1933-1945". The same session?

Several topics dealing with Musikkorps der Leibstandarte-SS Adolf Hitler have been merged. Posts dealing with a Müller-John's pre-LAH record have been moved to the record reviews topic.

Possibly the same occasion, but, in this case, I don't think it's taken from the same building (I don't think it's the same photographer).

Pronunciation of the "J" is the same as in the name Johann (John = Yohn). It's not the English "John".
Timo wrote:Müller-John [...] In 1945 he committed suicide in Austria, together with his wife and daughter. According to Lehmann this was his way to find peace with his involvement in the killing of 50 Polish civilians in 1939 (of whom several were Jewish).
By the way, I cannot believe Lehmann tried to sell this nonsense. So right when it was official that Germany lost the war (and nowhere in the past five years), Müller-John suddenly decides to find peace - with his wife and daughter (!?) - because he fealt sorry for the victims. Come on.

A lot of fine photos of the LSSAH band from 1941 can be found here: SS-KB Gösling album. Just a couple of examples:

[divisional commander Sepp Dietrich is on the left in the 1st photo; Müller-John is in the center of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 6th photo]

Photos of the LSSAH Musikkorps, his time made by SS-KB Weill. It must be France 1940 [Edit: it is Romania 1941. I. Ž.] (the town can be recognized by a statue of the soldier with flag).

Taken also by SS-KB Weill.

P.S. I didn't know that Leibstandarte also used sousaphone like Grosch and his band.

It seems that Weill also made a photoset of a some concert with military bands from Heer and Musikkorps of the Leibstandarte in Jardin des Tuileries, Paris.

The rest of the photos can be seen here.
If anyone could recognize another bandleaders, it would be most helpful. :)

I've added to your post the first LSSAH band photo from this session, in which can be seen the Romanian soldiers as well.

I planned to post the link to those too, thanks! :D (and I missed the last two! :) )

Check out also the KB Bergmann album:

You're welcome and thank you for the correction!
Haha, the last one I've missed, true! :-D On the last photo it must be Gerhard Straubel, who's carrying the Jingling Johnny?

Yes, I think so too. Search the rest of the album, there's some more with the band, but unfortunately all photos (from 7 Bergmann albums!) are now mixed up together for some reason so it's really hard to follow the sessions and time periods :x

That's sad. But I'll search it anyway. :)
